So, on through the years to follow, 
The times we are yet to see, 
On through the golden future, 
And the wondrous days to be, 
May there ever remain beside us, 
As a shield from peril to hide us, 
As a star to the truth to guide us, 
St. Mary's, our love for thee. 



When afar in the golden future 
In the days we have longed to see 
When out in the world we have wandered 
To work, and to strive, and to be, 
May the lives that we live be a token 
Of a loyal faith yet unbroken 
Of the tender love that's unspoken, 
St. Mary's, we bear to thee. 

May the deeds that we do proclaim us 

Thy daughters in truth to be. 

May we follow thy precepts and teachings 

Still happy and glad and free. 

May our stand for the right be securer, 

May our thoughts and our acts be surer, 

May our hearts and our lives be purer, 

St. Mary's, for love of thee.

Alma Mater 

(Tune: "Believe Me if All Those Endearing Young Charms") 

St. Mary's! wherever thy daughters may be 

They love thy high praises to sing, 
And tell of thy beauties of campus and tree 

Around which sweet memories cling; 
They may wander afar, out of reach of thy name, 

Afar, out of sight of thy grove, 
But the thought of St. Mary's aye kindles a flame 

Of sweet recollections and love. 

Beloved St. Mary's! how great is our debt! 

Thou has cared for thy daughters full well; 
They can never thy happy instructions forget, 

Nor fail of thy virtues to tell. 
The love that they feel is a heritage pure; 

An experience wholesome and sweet. 
Through fast rolling years it will grow and endure; 

Be a lamp and a guide to their feet. 

May the future unite all the good of thy past 

With the best that new knowledge can bring. 
Ever onward and upward thy course! To the last 

Be thou steadfast in every good thing. 
Generations to come may thy fair daughters still 

Fondly think on thy halls and thy grove 
And carry thy teachings — o'er woodland and hill — 
Of earnestness, wisdom, and love. 

H. E. H., 1905.

On May 12, 1842, the Rev. Dr. Aldert Smedes opened St. Mary's to its first 

pupils. 
On MarcK 10, 1897, the "Trustees of St. Mary's School, Raleigh, N. C," having 

received a charter from the State, the Board met, organized, and arranged 

to take over the School from Dr. Bennett Smedes. 
On September 1, 1907, the Rev. George W. Lay assumed the Rectorship of the 

School. 
In 1917 will therefore occur: 

(1) The 75th Anniversary of the Opening of the School. 

(2) The 20th Anniversary of the Church Ownership of the School. 

(3) The 10th Anniversary of the present Rectorship. 



Besides these, 1917 marks the 50th Anniversary of "Miss Katie's" connection with 
the School, which would in itself be enough to set aside the year as a special 
one. 



Thus the year 1917 will be indeed a memorable one at St. Mary's and for St. 
Mary's, and will be marked by events fitting the celebration of its many 
anniversaries. 



The Semi-Centennial of the School was celebrated very happily at the Commence- 
ment of 1902. 

The Hundredth Birthday of the Founder was celebrated appropriately on April 
20, 1910. 



It is expected that Alumnae Day, 1917, will be a time of even greater celebration. 






\ 



St. Mary's has been in large measure 
the life-work of Mrs. Mary (Johnson) 
Iredell. 

As "St. Mary's girl" "before the War" 
she was inspired with the spirit of Dr. 
Smedes, and later as teacher and aid to 
the Drs. Smedes in a multitude of ways, 
she in her turn imparted the spirit to 
many of the girls of later years. 

When the Church purchased the School 
she became Agent of the Trustees and 
did invaluable work in raising the neces- 
sary funds and in building up the School. 

She has always been active in Alumnse 
affairs and on her retirement from the 
active Presidency of the Alumnae Associ- 
ation in 1911 was made Honorary Presi- 
dent for life. 



Mrs. Ikedell 
"Love, Sweetness, Goodness 
in her person shin'd." 



In February, 1917, "Miss Katie" will 
have completed fifty years of continuous 
work in residence at St. Mary's. In 
February, 1867, she became a boarder in 
the School and her work has continued 
uninterruptedly, first as student and then 
as teacher.

The Alumnae Association of St. Mary's was established in 1880 and meets an- 
nually at Commencement. It has done effective work in aiding the progress of 
the School and grows yearly stronger and more vigorous. 

The Alumna? Chapters meet in their several towns and cities on November 1st, 
All Saints, which is celebrated as Founders' Day, and on May 12th, the date of the 
first opening of St. Mary's, which is observed as Alunmee Day. 

The most important special work accomplished by the Alumna? Association has 
been the establishment of the Smedes Memorial Scholarship, to the memory of the 
Founder and his son, the second Rector of St. Mary's; and the rebuilding of the 
Chapel. Its present special work is the fund for establishing the Mary Iredell and 
the Kate McKimmon Scholarships.

History of St. Mary's 

St. Mary's School was founded in 1842 by the Rev. Aldert Smedes, 
D.D. The present location was first set apart as the site for an Epis- 
copal School in 1832 when the present "Grove" was purchased for the 
establishing of a school for boys. This was not successful and the prop- 
erty passed back into private hands. 

Dr. Aldert Smedes was conducting a successful girls' school in New 
York City when in 1842 Bishop Ives met him and laid before him the 
opportunity in his North Carolina diocese. Dr. Smedes determined on 
the effort; came to Raleigh with a corps of teachers; gave St. Mary's its 
name and threw open its doors on May 12, 1842. 

From the first the school was a success and for the remainder of 
his life Dr. Smedes allowed nothing to interrupt the work he had under- 
taken. During the War between the States St. Mary's was at the same 
time school and refuge for those driven from their homes. 

On April 25th, 1877, Dr. Smedes died, leaving St. Mary's to the 
care of his son, Rev. Dr. Bennett Smedes, who carried on his father's 
work as a sacred trust. 

All this time St. Mary's was a Church School in the truest sense, 
but it was a private enterprise, and permanence required that it have 
a corporate existence, so in 1897 Dr. Bennett Smedes proposed to the 
Diocese of North Carolina that the Church should take charge of the 
School. The offer was accepted and in the fall of 1897 a charter was 
granted by the General Assembly. 

Dr. Bennett Smedes, who had long wished for this disposition of 
St. Mary's, continued as Rector until his death on February 22nd, 
1899. To succeed him the Trustees called the Rev. Theodore DuBose 
Bratton, Rector of the Church of the Advent, Spartanburg, S. C, and 
a teacher of long training. In September, 1899, Dr. Bratton took 
charge and for four years administered the affairs of the School very 
successfully. In May, 1903, he was chosen Bishop of Mississippi. In 
September, 1903, the Rev. McNeely DuBose became Rector and the 
School continued its useful career under his devoted care for four 
years, until he resigned in May, 1907, to resume parish work. Since 
September, 1907, the School has prospered under the fifth Rector, the 
Rev. George W. Lay.

Tomorrow, when the sun's 

First brilliant rays 

Have put to flight the lingering 

Stars of dawn, 

Our lives shall turn, and seek 

In unknown ways 

The new life, leave with sadness 

That now gone. 

Together, for the last time 
We shall hear 
The pealing of the bells 
So clear, so strong, 
Then shall we bid adieu 
To friends held dear, 
And turn aside to paths 
Now broad, now long. 

Now, the portals of tomorrow 

Stand so close 

And still within them spreads out 

Far, alone, 

What mortal man ne'er sees, 

Nor ever knows, 

The glowing, silent future, 

Vast unknown. 

Then, dawn of near tomorrow, 

Hasten on, 

And with your golden rays 

So dazzling bright, 

Oh, cast upon our separate 

Paths at dawn 

Your clear, your ever faithful 

Guiding light.

The Inter-Society Debates 

Since the organization of the Literary Societies the special feature 
of their work each year has been the Inter-Society Debates, held an- 
nually each spring. In the twelve years ending with 1912-'13, the 
Sigma Lambda Society was victorious in eight of these joint debates, 
and the Epsilon Alpha Pi Society in four debates. 

With the organization of the Alpha Rho Society in 1912 the 
Joint Debate gave place to a series of three debates, each society 
debating the other two. In 1914, Alpha Rho triumphed in both 
debates, and Epsilon Alpha Pi defeated Sigma Lambda. In 1915, 
Epsilon Alpha Pi won both debates and Sigma Lambda defeated 
Alpha Rho. 

In this — the Shakespearian year — the debates were omitted in 
favor of a Celebration of the Shakespearian Tercentenary, and, in 
cooperation with the English Department, all under the general direc- 
tion of Miss Thomas, the Societies gave their best efforts to the 
Shakespearian Inter-society Contest on April 10th, and the Shakespear- 
ian Festival on May 1st. 

In the Contest, the Sigma Lambda Society was pronounced the 
winner. There were thirty-two papers submitted, about evenly di- 
vided among the three Societies. The individual winners were: 

(1) Best Poem: Annie S. Cameron, '16, Alpha Rho 

(2) Best Story: Josephine S. Wilson, '16, Epsilon Alpha Pi 

(3) Senior Essay: Rena H. Harding, '16, EpBilon Alpha Pi 

(4) Junior Essay: Annie Huske Robinson, '17, Sigma Lambda 

(5) Sophomore Essay: Katherine Drane, '17, Sigma Lambda

Winners of the Shakespearian Contest 




Besides the Faculty Production of "Alice in Wonderland," which, 
of course, marks any year as "set apart," the Shakespearian Tercen- 
tenary Celebration is the great distinctive feature of the year. It was 
with a certain sense of relief that for this one season the debates were 
laid aside and every one entered wholeheartedly into the preparation 
for the celebration. This was divided into three parts. First, there 
was a Shakespearian literary contest under the direction of the three 
Literary Societies meant to conserve the spirit of rivalry engendered 
by the Debates. The culmination of this Contest was a public inter- 
society meeting held in the Auditorium on the evening of April 10th, 
and at this meeting were read the winning contributions. In this 
contest Alpha Rho led in the poetry, having the four best poems; Ep- 
silon Alpha Pi came out as first winner in a story and one essay; and 
Sigma Lambda was winner of two essays and second in a story and 
essay, thus proving herself the victor. 

The second part of the Celebration was the Tercentenary Festival 
itself, which was held under the direction of Miss Thomas and the 
three Literary Societies, and was considered by many people to be by 
far the prettiest thing ever given at St. Mary's. The Festival was 
held in the Grove on the slope back of the Auditorium on the night of 
May 1st and was a most wonderful success. Every one in the School 
took part, dressed in Elizabethan costume, and the merry gathering 
of Lords, Ladies, and gaily-dressed villagers made a bright scene not 
soon to be forgotten. 

The third part of the celebration was the Commencement Play, 
"As You Like It," given by the Dramatic Club under the direction 
of Miss Davis. 

The girls of 1916 feel that it has been a privilege to be able to have 
a part in the great Tercentenary Celebration, which is this year being 
observed throughout England and America, and the many festivities 
centering around its observance at St. Mary's mark a very bright 
spot in the memories of the year.

The Shakespeare Tercentenary 

Annie S. Cameron, '16. 

What a hurrying and a scurrying 

And a running 'round is seen, 

What a scrambling into smocks and cloaks, 

What a donning Lincoln green ; 

In all this wild confusion, if the people don't look out 

"A Comedy of Errors" it will prove without a doubt. 

See the madcap throng approaches, 
At the head a motley fool 
With his parti-colored trappings, 
Bells and bauble, all to rule. 
You may take it "As You Like It," 
But this frolic seems to be 
The very spirit of old England 
On a May Day holiday. 

Now the trumpets flare and flourish, 
And "The Tempest" of wild sound 
Shakes the crowd with merry laughter, 
And they reel in dances round, 
And the "Merry Wives" and yeomen, 
Country lad and lass, with glee, 
Join together in the dances, 
In the songs and minstrelsy. 

But a sudden hush has settled, 

The great dignitaries near 

Here approach "Two Noble Kinsmen," 

The most important, it is clear, 

For the people bow before them 

And the trumpets blare once more, 

And 'twould be "Love's Labor Lost" to try 

To speak above that roar. 



jK. 



When the uproar has Bubsided 
And a slight hush come again, 
The players are presented — 
They are just hard-handed men — 
But in "Pyramus and Thisbe" 
They excel themselves, 'tis true, 
Are applauded by the people and 
The dignitaries too. 

Then "Measure for Measure" reels the dance, 

And the merry dancers seem 

Hardly real or existing, 

But a bright "Midsummer's Dream," 

Or, like an old tradition 

Which is heard throughout the land, 

Like a "Winter's Tale" of May Day 

As it's kept in Fairyland. 

Now, no doubt you really wonder 
At the cause of all these dreams, 
"Much Ado About Nothing" 
Perhaps to you it seems. 
But we're gathered here to honor 
Great Will Shakespeare; for the rest 
If "All's Well That Ends Well" 
It has been a great success. 

(One of the winning poems in the Shakespearian ConteBt of April 10, 1916)

Autumn 

A vague, haunting sadness broods over the earth; 

The forest's green banners are furled 
And the blue haze of Autumn like incense of prayer 

Hangs over the golden world. 

A spirit of quiet and rest is abroad, 

And wild-throbbing nature lieB still, 
For peace rests over the russet field 

And over the purple hill. 

Dim memories are stirred by these golden days, 

Vague longings, and wistful regret, 
For the eve of the year, with its gentle appeal, 

Stirs man's soul, that he may not forget. 

A. S. C, '16 



A Summer Night 

The fire-fly flits through the gloaming, 

And his wee shining spark is alight. 
The wind murmurs low in the hollows, 

Crooning wild, tender songs of the night. 

The stars, tiny lamplets, are twinkling; 

The radiant moon is abeam, 
And meadow and fen-land are shimmering, 

In her pale, misty light all agleam. 

The meadows, dew-drenched, breathe forth perfume, 

And afar o'er hollow and hill, 
Wind blown through the dim, misty silence, 

Comes the cry of the lone whippoorwill. 

O'er all things a sweet stillness broodeth, 

The world is asleep and adream, 
While afar in the wide peaceful heavens, 

The moon and the bright starlets beam. 

A. S. C, '16

The Gall 

A call to me comes in the evening wind 

From mountain and hill and plain, 

'Neath the tinted skies 

Where the red sun dies, 

And the Btars creep forth again. 

Down through the ages of by-gone days 
Unto the years to be, 
It is ringing still 
Over vale, and hill, 
Over the world to me. 

And my heart leaps up with an answering cry 
Born of this call of old, 
And with wild desire 
My heart is on fire, 
Under the skies of gold. 

Oh, for a voice to carry it on, 

To send it forth again, 

In words of flame 

This message that came, 

Over the world to men. 

To see and be silent! Hear and be dumb! 
Barren of words and weak! 
Yet to know and to feel 
Life's throbbing appeal — 
Ah, but for a voice to speak! 

A. S. C, '16
